What to do with nasal conjestion for 2 weeks?


I have had nasal conjestion since Christmas morning. It's not uncommon, yet this time it seems that only 1 nasal passage is blocked and when I sleep the other nasal passage gets stuffy so I am waking up, yet when i blow my nose nothing comes out and after a few minutes of sitting up the usually clear passage is finally cleared again. Is it time to see a doctor, or should I just wait it out a little longer?

Why doesnt using a saline nasal doesnt work all the time?


Sometimes when i have a sinus headache i will do a saline nasal rinse using a nasal spray. Sometimes this doesn't always work and i would like to know why. Isn't the reason i am having a sinus headache because my sinuses are swollen bc of the irritants that are in them? If i wash the irritants out then that should take care of the swelling am i right? Why doesn't using a saline nasal spray always work to alleviate my sinus headaches?

Is it good to use a nasal spray everyday?


Is rinsing out the nasal passages everyday beneficial in the same way brushing your teeth everyday is?

I started using a drug-free saline solution every morning and night when I had a cold, but now that the cold is gone I'm wondering if I should continue?
----------

If it is just a saline solution, you can try using it every day. See if it makes you breath better. moisturizng sinus tissues may also prevent another cold, since it can wash away viruses and dry tissues are more susceptible to viruses as well.  (+ info)
